Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford has told Gamespot that the studio isn’t working on a Heat game despite owning the IP, and would consider releasing the rights.

“In a nutshell, we’re nowhere,” Pitchford told the site when asked what was going on with the bank-robbing movie property, despite “filmmakers, game-makers, and publishing partners” all on board.

“We’re not keeping the IP locked down anymore,” he added. “If somebody else were in a spot where they could do it, and everybody was comfortable with that, then conceivably that could happen.”

Lack of time and resources has prevented work going forward on the title.
